The Birkin: is it the "Holy Grail" of all handbags? For many, yes. Yes it is. The Birkin typically costs around $20k, but if you really want to splurge, go for the Hermes Matte Crocodile Birkin Bag. At a mere $120,000, it's much less expensive than Chanel's Diamond Forever. A bargain! The 10 carats of diamonds encrusted on the Birkin's hardware certainly add a nice bit of bling.
